Facilitated by: Doug Altman, Gary Collins, Ben Goldacre, Iveta Simera, Jo Silva and Elizabeth Wager
Over the past decades, the development of rigorous methods of research synthesis and the movement to apply research evidence to medical practice has shone a very bright light on the health research literature. Researchers and methodologists have found that many primary studies are so badly reported it’s impossible to assess their methodological quality or use the data for systematic reviews. In short, the literature is not fit for purpose.
Public funds are wasted because of bad reporting or non-reporting of research, the goodwill of research participants is betrayed, and patients’ care is compromised.
Using reporting guidelines when writing (and reviewing) research manuscripts is a simple, cost-effective solution for improving completeness, accuracy and usability of medical research papers.
